    GREAT sauce! Used it with the fried chicken wing recipe and was awesome! I'm assuming it would also be good as a sauce for rice noodles. Or tossed with other battered/fried things - like shrimp and served over rice with veggies. Next time i will make 2x or 3x this recipe and store it for another use.
